The Marblehead Festival of Arts will take place from June 30 through July 4 this year. It features 10 visual art exhibits comprised of original work by artists in Essex County. Artwork is selected by judges with expertise and knowledge in their field of judging, and awards are distributed in each exhibit category. Visitors are also invited to vote for their favorite work at each exhibit. Most of the artwork displayed in the exhibits is available for sale. Exhibit categories, locations, and descriptions are listed below.
I am excited to have three pieces of art chosen to be part of this year’s Festival, in addition to my work on display for Painting the Town and the Marblehead Arts Assoc. Members’ Show.
At the Painting Exhibit, enjoy a juried exhibit of original artwork in oil, ink, acrylic or watercolor. Classic media for today’s contemporary artists. My accepted painting is Seasons Tree, acrylic 30″ x 40″. The Drawing Exhibit is a juried exhibit of original drawings in pencil, pen and ink, charcoal, conté crayon and other media. My drawing is titled “Determination”, pastel & ink, 16″ x 20″ matted and framed. The Painting and Drawing exhibits will be on display at Abbot Hall, 188 Washington Street.
The Senior Art Exhibit, is a non-juried exhibit of original work comprising crafts, drawing, mixed media, painting, photography, digital art, printmaking and sculpture by persons 65 years of age and older. Creativity knows no boundaries. My painting is “Fireworks”, acrylic, 16″ x 20″ and is a view of the Lynn/Swampscott fireworks viewed from Nahant Beach. The Senior show is at the Unitarian Universalist Church, 28 Mugford St., Marblehead.
